Zoabi: Arabs Have Carried More of the Burden


Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi (National Democratic Assembly) claimed, Thursday, that there is no equal burden of national service for Israeli Arabs because they have carried more of the burden, explaining that the Jewish state was founded on their shoulders and on their land. 

Speaking at a Bar Association conference on the equal burden of service said that the discourse on the subject is an excuse for harming Arabs in the land. Her remarks were interrupted a number of times. Some of the hecklers told he to leave the site of the conference and to leave the country.
